Serbian protege on trial with City
City are giving a week’s trial to Danijel Aleksic, an 18 year-old Serbian striker who made history last year by appearing in the Under-17, Under-19, Under-21 and full national squads.
According to Sky Sports, City have been monitoring him for two years, but his parents were understandably not keen on him travelling to England at 16. He is currently with Serbian club Vojvodina, and has been linked with Ajax, Bayern Munich, Real Madrid, Villareal and no doubt a few others.
According to a report in the Daily Mail this morning we have already agreed a Ã‚Â£6m deal for the youngster, but this seems a bit premature.
With both Ched Evans and Danniel Sturridge leaving in the Summer, City are short of young forwards pushing for the first team. Those in last year’s youth side look to need more experience. Aleksic could be the striker to fill the Sturridge sized gap in our squad.
